This small volume captures the essence of a larger-than-life person, the legendary Gypsy Boots, who was decades ahead of his time in his philosophy of natural foods and natural living, and although he cared not at all about material things he paradoxically became quite a celebrity in his own right - no one had ever seen anyone quite so himself! This book is a combination of his life story and his advice for healthy living, and also includes a section of photographs of him charming various Hollywood, sports and political personalities. With an introduction by Steve Allen, on whose television show Gypsy Boots was a frequent and much beloved guest.

Thanks for archiving.
This book is currently being offered used for over 700 dollars at Amazon. This archived copy is a bit worn and jumbled-- but gives a good picture of the eccentric Gypsy Boots who possibly helped start the countercultural health and back-to-nature fads that have become mainstream today. Boots was possibly the first person to describe fruit and vegetarian drinks as "Smoothies."
Boots was one of those remarkable people who lived lightly on the planet, but contributed to it immensely.
